If you’re interested in the development of dance, dancers, and performance —this is for you. Bring your questions!
“When I watch dance, what is my role? Why does this performer appeal to me, not that one? Is the performer sharing with me, or doing it for themselves? Does it matter?
Directed by Amelia McQueen and Natalie Abbott in collaboration with the performers: Rhiannon Ferris, Kelly Beneforti, Brie Healy, Chiemi Fukumori, Sarah Taylor, Jamie Winbank, Courtney Scheu, Anna Kallstrom, Hannah Wong, Ashlee Bye.

QL2's "Soft Landing" program gives graduate dancers from tertiary courses around Australia a chance to find their feet in a mentored development project in Canberra. It is a unique opportunity to maintain and extend dance training, share knowledge and skills with interstate graduates, forge creative partnerships and launch a creative practice for the future. It has supported many recent graduates during the difficult transition from the tertiary course into the dance profession.
